2014 OTC Diesel alum Allison Camp gained a fierce attitude for success early in her Diesel training. She spent over five years wrenching and training new hires at a nationally franchised truck rental company. When repeated attempts at gaining promotion failed, she knew it was time to move on. She is now with Rush Truck Centers in Cleveland where she is in total control of her schedule and earning potential. Camp has a designated route with over 40 accounts and admits she drives an average of 1,200 miles a week visiting her clients and contacting new ones.
She also attends trade shows “About 50% of my times are spent driving.” Good thing her position comes with a company vehicle. Camp knows her OTC training gives her advantage when it comes to selling parts and services. “I know if a customer tells me they need an exhaust pipe, I need to ask if they also want clamps and gaskets? Nothing is more frustrating to tech to not have all the parts they need to finish the job.” Camp can also offer mobile service if a customer wants work done on-site and even towing services if a vehicle is disabled and needs to be towed to their beautiful Cleveland facility for repair. “This job is much more than selling parts.” Truck Centers have 5 locations in Ohio and more than a hundred across the United States. They are the largest network of commercial truck dealerships and continue to grow. They have plans to hire over 9,000 technicians in 2019
